Here's a recipe for some excellent cookies that are great at Christmas time and should be fun to make with a little one.
Sift together flour, nutmeg and salt. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture, stirring well after each addition, until all flour is incorporated. On a lightly floured surface, form pieces of dough into long ½-inch thick ropes. Cut ropes into 3-in pieces; place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350F for 12 to 15 minutes or until logs are lightly browned on bottom. Let cool completely before frosting.
Frosting: Cream together icing sugar and butter until smooth. Stir in enough rum to give a smooth spreading consistency. Spread cooled logs with frosting. Drag tines of fork through frosting to resemble tree bark and sprinkle with a little nutmeg. Makes about 40 REC.FOOD.RECIPES ARCHIVES
